Australian Bouldering Nationals

The weather has been crap crap crap crap, nthing but rain (Good for the dams)
The Australian bouldering nationals were held on the weekend 24th and 25th of November. The comp was due to be held in Katoomba on an amazing outside scaffold wall but due to the rain had to be moved to the pitch climbing gym at the last minute.
The pitch has the best walls in Australia for bouldering so the venue was a good choice.
The field in the mens open was very strong so I was very keen to climb my best. We had 5 boulders in the heats and I managed to top them all qualifying through to the finals in first place. Then came the finals, 4 boulder problems and each one had a style of its own I stuffed up on the first problem and only got the bonus hold, so I knew if I was going to win I had to pull my finger out and top out on the remaining 3 boulders. So I did just that becoming the Australian National bouldering Champion for 2007.
A big thanks to all those involved in this great event.
